Senior photos aren’t something that we do very often, but we absolutely love them!
We were thrilled to be able to work with Ava, Jennifer’s cousin, for her session, and we love what we came away with.  Jake did most of her session on film, and the images are stunning.

Ava is a natural beauty, and so easy to photograph, please enjoy a few of our favorite images from her shoot!

Best of luck in your final year of High School, Ava!

Jenna and Mitch didn’t let a little bit of rainfall dampen their day.

Their sweet ceremony at St.Francis and their reception at the ever-stunning Armour House was so full of joy and laughter!

We were thrilled to be a part of their day, and couldn’t get over the way Mitch looked at his beautiful bride.

Please enjoy a few of our favorite images from their day!

Photographing this beautiful Mama-to-be is an easy task.

I was lucky to be able to spend a few days with Julie and Jerome in Colorado a couple of weeks ago, and were able to go out a few times to get some photos of Julie’s amazing baby bump.  We did an evening shoot at a park with their dogs, an afternoon shoot up near a mountain lake, and a sunrise shoot near their home.

Julie is my sister, and she is such a gift to me.  I know she is going to be an amazing mother, and I am excited to watch her transition into this new role of motherhood.

Please enjoy a few of my favorite images from our time together!

There are a lot of photos in this post, but it’s just the way it has to be.

This.was.an.amazing.wedding.

We didn’t know each other before we did their engagement session, but shooting Kelly and Matt’s wedding was like being at a private outdoor concert with friends.  Only two people just happened to get married, and we just happened to document every incredible second.

First of all, if you’re going to have your dog at your wedding, and she’s going to be wearing a floral wreath, you know we are going to get along just fine.  Couple that with amazing music by the Waydown Wanderers (who we have since been listening to non-stop), plenty of DIY details, homegrown flowers, a jaw-dropping BHLDN gown, and damn good people, all on your family’s farm — you’ve got yourself a recipe for one of our favorite weddings of all time.

Please enjoy a few (ok, many, many) photos of Kelly and Matt’s beautiful farm wedding…

Peggy and Jarrod had a beautiful day for their early-Fall wedding a couple of weeks ago.  They were such a joy to work with, and we were thrilled to be a part of their celebration.

They held their ceremony and reception at the Carriage Greens Country Club in Darien, IL.  Gorgeous jewel tones and snippets of peacock feathers accented their decor, and we loved their easy-going and laid-back style.

These two were so fun to be around, and we are happy to share a few of our favorite images from their day with you!
